My mom only had one eye. I hated her… She was such an embarrassment. She cooked for students and teachers to support the family.
There was this one day during elementary school where my mom came to say hello to me. I was so embarrassed.
How could she do this to me? I ignored her, threw her a hateful look and ran out. The next day at school one of my classmates said, “EEEE, your mom only has one eye!”
I wanted to bury myself. I also wanted my mom to just disappear. I confronted her that day and said, “If you’re only gonna make me a laughing stock, why don’t you just die?”
My mom did not respond… I didn’t even stop to think for a second about what I had said, because I was full of anger. I was oblivious to her feelings.
I wanted out of that house, and have nothing to do with her. So I studied real hard, got a chance to go abroad to study.
Then, I got married. I bought a house of my own. I had kids of my own. I was happy with my life, my kids and the comforts. Then one day, my Mother came to visit me. She hadn’t seen me in years and she didn’t even meet her grandchildren.
When she stood by the door, my children laughed at her, and I yelled at her for coming over uninvited. I screamed at her, “How dare you come to my house and scare my children! GET OUT OF HERE! NOW!!!”
And to this, my mother quietly answered, “Oh, I’m so sorry. I may have gotten the wrong address.” – and she disappeared out of sight.
One day, a letter regarding a school reunion came to my house. So I lied to my wife that I was going on a business trip. After the reunion, I went to the old shack just out of curiosity.
My neighbors said that she died. I did not shed a single tear. They handed me a letter that she had wanted me to have.
“My dearest son,
I think of you all the time. I’m sorry that I came to your house and scared your children.
I was so glad when I heard you were coming for the reunion. But I may not be able to even get out of bed to see you. I’m sorry that I was a constant embarrassment to you when you were growing up.
You see……..when you were very little, you got into an accident, and lost your eye. As a mother, I couldn’t stand watching you having to grow up with one eye. So I gave you mine.
I was so proud of my son who was seeing a whole new world for me, in my place, with that eye.
With all my love to you,
Well that is a really sad story. It boils down to you don’t know what you have got until it is gone. People should learn how to treat their parents better, in the end you will be glad you did.
Very touching :’-(
This was a really sad story. Mother is the one who showed u the whole world and if there is any idiot 2 hate a mother he is waste of living in this world.
I will be more grateful if I got a mum like her. Unfortunately, no. Everyday I had to cry becauz she kills me with her words.
This story is really touching. I will be more grateful if I got a mum like her but for me… my mum is 1% also not like her… actually she treats me like a maid. Hope God can change my situation like yours.
This is a very touching story. In our Gujrati language there is a sentence: “Choru k choru thai, pan mavtar k mavtar na thai.”
It means: children could forget their duty, but parents could not.
Is this a true story????
Such a nice and sad story…..
This story really touched my heart and the lesson is very clear, love your parents for their love for you and the sacrifices they’ve made is unmeasured. Do all you can for them while they are still alive!
It’s an emotional story and I admit that but I think we must learn how to respect our parents and I think the writer has given his point in a great way. I like the theme of the story and the message it conveys.
If i were him i will be proud
Very nice and really good…
It was a really sad story which made me cry. I hate those children who disrespect their parents.
A very touching story! I want to cry!
This is the best story I have ever read…
This is a very very touching story… I wish that all the chilren in the world respects thier parets… ;(
We just shame on ourselves, parents do many thing for us but we only give them sorrow why? they never asked us. even they always ready to die for us! AND we always ready to take the soul from them shame on us!
Ohhhhhhh… very sad story 🙁 touched my heart so muchhhhhhhh … plz plz plz do respect to ur mother, she is the best woman in ur life…..
Very touching and valuable story. I lost my mom 5 yrs back, she was my best and only friend.. I miss her each second of my life. Love u mom.
This story touched me a lot….. because I love my mom….very much…
It’s absolutely sad!!!!!!! I hurted my mom for some years… but now i realize….mom is everything…but now my sis is following my step!!!! what should i do? every words from my sis for my mother is really bad.. i feel like to slap her… but i realize that this is my fault
This was a really sad story, I wish to God that every child respects his parents.
I hate my mom and this story dosen’t change a thing.
It’s not a story, it’s a reality.
This is actually real !
I have no words to explain this story, but i want to explain that mother is just like a god who always care his/her child.
Lakhani vardan group.
So, sad. How could he be so mean to his mother even when he was older!? So mean. I hope this story taught everyone something. To respect their mothers.
No words for this story, such a sad one……..
This is a sad and touching story. I have selected this story for my school story telling competition. I hope I will be able to bring tears in ordians eyes and judges.
My friend got the second prize for the story telling competition, all thanks to this loving story.
After reading the story, my eyes overwhelmed with tears. It reveals the brutality of a son who ignored his mother who sacrificed her life including her eyes for the sake of her son. In the universe mother’s love is pure and eternal. That’s why mother has top priority in the society next to father, teacher and god…. Every child should realize mother’s love towards children.
Really a heart touching story!. Everyone should be proud of their mother.
One of the best preaching stories in my life. I could hardly stop crying. Made me realize the importance of my parents one more time.
Really wonderful story… All children please realize the importance of your parents because they are God’s gift to us…..
Touching story, good moral, and sorry but there is no such thing as a whole eye transplant. Corneal transplant yes, but not eye, and at any rate adult eye would be too large to transplant to a child……
I feel sorry for your mum and I hope you forgive your mum and I believe you were in tears to sum up you have the luckiest mum cause non mum will give their child the eye away!
I LOVE U MOM
U ARE THE BEST
I LOVE U DAD
U ARE MY COD2 BUDDY
It is a very touching story and a very sad one. This story tells me that we have to love our parent from the deepest of our heart. They sacrifie all their happiness for us only. I just want to make my parents happy forever.
You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be thankful for having a Lovely Mother who took good care of u when u were a child.
You have no respect for her. She shouldn’t be treated like this.
I love this story it is so touching…. Whoever wrote this story is an amazing person. I have a question, is this a real story? If so sorry but it is a sad one.
It is really inspiring me…
I do love my mother no matter what but for some reasons she doesn’t care about me anymore. She told me face to face go you are not my son and i have not done nothing wrong to her. I always respect her and everything she always telling all my friend bad things about me!!! but when i read that one eye mother I cried like a baby Bcuz the love of my mother!!
Its touching and real sad i should say. makes me feel the need to luv mom even more than i do…..
This story is so touching. I had balancing tears, I have been so disrespectful at times and I promise to change and ALWAYS THANK my beautiful mother who is a single parent
I dont think anyone should treat their mother like that. I cried after reading this. Imagine how the mother had felt! Her own son…
I love my mom and dad. 🙂 I will never take them for granted.
It was a very touching story…..what v do with our parents today is what our kids will do to us one day!!
He’ll surely learn a lesson.
Touching story but totally unrealistic. You can’t transplant someone’s eye.
Mothers and fathers live for their children. They sacrifice for us. We should always love and respect them. We should not avoid them…
I wish all moms in the world are like this mom…
Take care of what you have, don’t wait until it is lost.
I felt so sad 🙁
How does a child treat to his/her mum like this?????????
the mum was really a god……
Mothers’ love can’t be second to any other thing in this world!
This story is so sad, I will remember this when my mom makes me mad. I am going to pass this story along.
MOTHER IS GOD
MOTHER IS LOVE
MOTHER IS EVERYTHING
I love u vry vry much mom,…..
Hell yeah….. love you mom…… awesome story !!!!!
Love u mom….such a sad story
Very touching story, and it really made me cry, love you mum……..
It was a very touching story. I had almost tears in my eyes.
It is sad not to accept your parents the way they are. For you not knowing that one day it comes around to hurt you for life. This is one of the best stories I recomend. It give a thought to life and in making choices.
It really brought tears in my Eyes and a child could see whole world only beacuse of her Mom. All Mom, long live happily..
What a story really altimate ……..
Love you MOm and Dad
Who is this unworthy son!!!
What a touching lesson..love u mom.
First of all, great story. Valuable lessons taught. There are also some hidden things here too. Why didn’t the mother tell her son this from the start rather than leave a guilt note after she died? Also, was she really a kind loving mom all those years? Yes, he was truly a jerk for hating her because she had only one eye, but you would think a lifelong relationship has more to it than that. Just trying to point out a few holes in the story, although I agree the moral of it is outstanding and parents and children should love and respect each other.
This story shows about present situation of the world.
Such a great sacrifice only for her meany child…….. I’m very happy with my parents & I promise I’ll never do such kind of things to my parents.
Luv u mummy-papa.
Is there heart, there is emotion. Is there emotion, there is tears. Is there tears, there is sacrifice. Is there sacrifice, there is MOM. Only she can do this.
As in our childhood our parents took care of us, now let us take care of them….
It’s a fearful story. How does a child can do such a cruality to a mother …………. so sad story. By reading this the tears came from my eyes.
Stand for your family
I love my mom and that boy should feel the guilt and sadness he put his mother through. I would say I love my father but my mom didn’t marry him and I never met him. I would say the same for my stepfather but he cheated on my mom, couldn’t hold down a job and hit my brother. I HATE HIM. I would say the same for my second stepfather but he was a drunk, with gambling problems, he was a pervert, he smacked my friend’s ass and would stare at mine. I HATE HIM. I still love my mother with all my heart and I would do almost anything for her and my 11 year old brother. This was a touching story.
Ah! what a touching story. I love it. How can that guy do that to his own mother, hate that fellow. Love my parents, they do everything for me, they are wonderful!
Awww very touching! I hate that guy. I love my parents so much! They are the reason why I exist in this beautiful world.
